Pizza night

When I was but a wee lad, I remember a special Friday night tradition. After school and playing outside, when Dad had the night off, he would make pizza. It would consist of him making large over-portioned, over-loaded pizzas. While Dad would create the pizza, I would fetch beers for him, try to watch TV and steal samples of toppings. It was a delicious evening, and usually turned into cold pizza for breakfast!

I decided that I should bring this tradition into the Quad-MGM household. Mary wanted to go to an investment seminar that one of friends was teaching this evening. So I decided that Maddox, Maverick and I would make pizza. It was slightly tricky since we only have an oven big enough for one small baking sheet and enough counter space for said baking sheet. I made it work and turned out 2 beautiful pizzas. Maddox likes it and I enjoyed making it for her. I also learned that it is easier to steal toppings when you are the one in charge!

I think that my father would be proud of me.

I forgot to mention that we don't have a pizza cutter here.

I made 3 cheese for Maddox (Mozzarella, Mexican blend, and parmesan). For me I made: pepperoni, onion, red pepper, and pepper rings. Also a little trick that Dad taught me was to add a little bit of kosher salt to the top of the pizza, I didn't have any kosher, but I made due.
